Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Shaggy says Australia isn't a real place, and that kangaroos are made-up. This is a serious continuity error or Shaggy has a memory lapse, since the gang has been to Australia and seen real kangaroos.

  • Velma puts her human commet helmet above the glasses, which diappear as soon as her eyes can be seen through the helmet's.
